Nivea body lotions are gradually becoming everyone’s favorites. This is because the standard Nivea body lotions live up to are unmatched. Each of the products in the Nivea lotion range is amazingly produced to meet needs and solve problems.
I was first introduced to Nivea lotion during my A-levels and it was the Nivea Essentially Enriched Body Lotion. This is by far the most popular Nivea lotion in Nigeria and even though I was never the one to analyze body lotions and fragrances as at that time of my life, I loved it.
I really can’t place why this popular blue Nivea lotion was the rave and is still is because it is intended to be deeply moisturizing from dry to very dry skin.
I must also mention that as at the time the range of Nivea body lotions were not skin care products I could afford. These are the kinds of products you bring from home. Your mother either bought them for you or you go to your dearly beloved original shea butter, coconut oil, pears or Vaseline.
In this blog post, I will be sharing the best of the Nivea lotions you should try out in 2019. I will try to cover as many grounds as possible. This is to aid your purchasing decision on which of the Nivea products to go for if you are a Nivea fanatic like me.
I mean, some of us don’t even consider other body lotions. Whatever body lotion we are going for, it is going to be Nivea still, just with another name.
I have come to appreciate how carefully they produce their lotions. It is so glaring that Nivea as a skincare/cosmetic company releases products with consumers in mind and really, you want to be within that sect if you have a skin that means that much to you.
The fact that none of their body lotions is left stale is a relief. Nivea is always practically doing one thing or the other to update their products.
It is either a brand new packaging is released, ingredients are modified to meet up with current skin requirements or even entirely new products are rolled out to match up with the current needs of the consumers.
And you have no idea, Nivea is region eccentric. Like, they would go all out for market surveys to be sure this is what consumers in the regions need.
I remember the rolling out and the attendant popularity of Nivea Natural Fairness. That product was rolled out essentially for the African, particularly West African region.
There were a lot of frowns and all but I think that essentially understanding that the aim was not to induce or promote bleaching but to prevent further blackening and excessive tanning of the body was a good case to push.
I want to be sure to say that none of my Nivea lotion reviews as at the time of writing this is sponsored. I say this so that you can trust that I write with the interest of my blog readers at heart.
Of course, I don’t mind sponsorship, what Blogger does anyway? Well, I would still say what I exactly think of any product or service even if it were sponsored. My criticisms are never destructive, however.
Any not so positive thought about a product or service is conveyed in the most gracious of manners to either express myself, inform the manufacturers, convey displeasing murmurs of other people or to press for a review of the product or service by the manufacturers.
